Bow River Update-July 9

Bow River Report – July 9, 2015

Updated conditions on the Bow…as of yesterday afternoon we are back up to an average of 69 Fahrenheit water temperature. These were recorded in mid-river flows. Along the banks and in slower water the temperatures are higher.
Continued hot weather through until Sunday won’t help things very much.

We recommend that anglers play fish as quickly as possible, not taking the fish out of the water. Until things cool down a little you might also want to skip that fish photo and get them back on their way.

Moving on from the negative, fishing has been a little better the last couple of days. Not a lot of rising fish, except very late in the evening. Streamer fishing has been the high point a lot of the time, with light colored and flashy streamers working best.
